Kieran Perkins

Kieran is an Associate at 5th Studio, a registered Architect and an experienced urban & landscape designer. Kieran works between the Cambridge and London studios and has been involved with the practice since 2001. Since joining the practice full-time in 2004 he has worked on projects at a range of scales and sectors and for diverse client groups.

Recent projects include large-scale landscape proposition and masterplanning work in the Lea Valley, the detailed design of innovative new public and residential buildings, and the development of highly crafted interventions in existing, often historic environments. Across all of these fields Kieran consistently brings skills of creative insight and the elegant resolution of complex, often contradictory, conditions.

Kieran’s approach includes an impressive strategic outlook, excellent visual and verbal communication skills and a very high level of care in relation to delivery and detail design. He is particularly experienced at intelligently combining high-level strategic thinking with a concern for, and enjoyment of, the physical, experiential and practical qualities of buildings and places.

Kieran has taught at the University of Cambridge and at Nottingham University and serves on the Shape East Design Review Panel and the Cambridge Design and Conservation Panel.
